Have you tried closing the media player?

If you are on firefox you can right click on the download box in the lower left hand corner of your tool bar and cancel downloads.

You could also press the stop button on the top browser tool bar.

You could close the tab or window that was opened when you started the download.

one of these should work....

Thanks for the reply.

Have you tried closing the media player?
The player is part of the Internet Archive page.
It cannot be closed without closing the entire page.
But even if the page is closed, or I go to a completely
different and/or unrelated page, the streaming continues.

If you are on firefox you can right click on the download box in the lower left hand corner of your tool bar and cancel downloads.
I am unable to find said box.

You could also press the stop button on the top browser tool bar.
The "Stop" button is not highlighted while the video is
streaming.

You could close the tab or window that was opened when you started the download.
The only means I've discovered is to close down the
browser and lose everything, or disconnect from the
internet. I was hoping there was a firefox add-on or
something within the Archive page.

Thanks again. I'll keep searching for something.

You'll have to kill the Flash player. Not sure what this would be in Windows, but check the Task Manager. In Linux, it would be 'npviewer.'
